    Pool hall injuries. Cuts, burns, bites... whatever.

    I've seen someone get their front tooth chipped while trying to catch a CB. The guy lost the CB on the break. Someone else picks it up and gently tosses it towards the breaker. The breaker goes to scoop catch the CB but miss handles it and it caroms off his hand/wrist and into his open mouth...
